Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have worked either.https://www.dropbox.com/s/xf1z7w3qs4zy2tl/Due%20Diligence%20Questionnaire%20-%20Individual-mkv6.pdf?dl=0Is that code setting the zoom based on the click? Would it be better to set zoom when the document is opened? Thanks.

Unfortunately adding a blank page did not resolve the issue - Dropbox - Due Diligence Questionnaire - Individual-mkv5.2.pdfIt may not be an issue, but if the user is zoomed out enough that they can see the question mark buttons without scrolling it will create the issue. It may not happen often, but its hard to implement if it possess a potential issue.

Are you suggesting that I need to use - xfa.host.messageBox(naics_code.somExpression.split(".")[naics_code.somExpression.split("." ).length - 1]); - to lock in the [0] value? I'm just curious to how an external system will read the form. I believe my firm will be using Fusion to pull the data off the completed form and not sure if the code above is needed to display the correct syntax or if you're just showing me different options you have at controlling it.

Thanks for the response. I just wanted to confirm that I've read this correctly. Regardless of if the field is dynamic or or not, the syntax would be "field name" = [0], although within the tool it really only shows the field name. If you have additional instances of that field, then the digit within the brackets would increase at a rate of 1. Is that correct?I think I now see this information under the Object -> Binding -> Name section, but I just wanted to confirm. Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I still have some additional questions because I've very new to Adobe LiveCycle. I've also attached an example.Dropbox - Due Diligence Questionnaire - Retirement-mk.pdfI'm still a bit confused on how the original field name is handled. If no additional NAICS Code fields are added, the original filed name is naics_code. If an additional NAICS Code field is added, is the original field name changed? I'm trying to determine what the field names are so that we can...

I was also curious as to the naming convention that is applied to dynamic fields. For instance in one of my documents I have a field named “naics_code”. This field is dynamic in that the user can add an additional instance. What would the field name of additional instances that were added by the user? naics_code-1, naics_code_1? Thanks.

Bruce,Thanks. I think I've figured it out well enough now to replicate to the other files. However I do have one last question (hopefully it's my last question).I noticed a potential issue. I've uploaded a video to YouTube to help me describe the issue.AutoScreenRecorder 03 Feb 27 15 06 - YouTubeWhen I open the document and use the zoom to view/access the question marks (instead of scrolling the document) the buttons don't seem to work. Well most of them, for some reason the first question mark ...

Also is there any way to add some additional padding so that the text isn't cut off by the tool bar in some instances. Like the attached.

Bruce,Thanks for the continued help. I've gotten closer, but unfortunately I still haven't implemented it correctly. I've tried to make the change to the "section_1_customer_information_question_mark_button" within "Addl_Cust". Attached is the latest version of my file.Dropbox - Due Diligence Questionnaire - Individual-mkv5.pdfAlso I'm a little concerned that changing the language to "FormCalc" that will break the rest of my Javascript code I'm using on the same button. Sample code for that is b...

Bruce,Thanks again for the reply. I'm actually going to give your solution an attempt and maybe just move the destinations around a little bit so that the text isn't cut off from the toolbar. Unfortunately since I'm a bit new to Adobe LiveCycle Designer, I'm having a bit of difficulty replicating your solution. I noticed the new code "XFAUtil.scrollTo" but I'm having issues implementing the rest of the solution. It appears that you also created a new page "FormCalc" and stored some variables on ...

Bruce,Thanks for the reply. Do the results vary based on the zoom level of the document, which I think is similar to SetFocus? It appears that I get different results with different zooms. Targeting "What is the nature of business?"100%vs 125%If that is the case, unfortunately this method may be just as effective as SetFocus. I apologize if I'm missing something. Fairly new to Adobe LiveCycle Designer. Thanks again for responding and being willing to help!

I'm building a document for a client and I'm using a SetFocus button to go from the top of the form to the bottom of the form. However when you click the button and are brought to the bottom of the document the SetFocus location is sometimes at the bottom of the view. Is there a way to set the view so that the destination I'm trying to link to is always in the center of the users screen? Attached is the document and click the blue question mark next to "What is the nature of the business?" for a...

You've guessed it, I'm brand new to Adobe LiveCylce Designer. I'm played around with it a good bit, but I'm having issues with something that I imagine is pretty straight forward and simple. I'm trying to take and existing pdf form and merge it with a word document. I would like to have the content of the word document appear at the bottom of the existing form When I open the word document, the information is converted to a new form. Not a huge issue, but when I try to copy and paste the pages f...
